Understanding Your Cat's Behavior

This is a Zoom program. Registration recommended. 

Everyone loves a good cat video, but what if your cat isn’t acting quite as cute as the ones you see on the internet?

Are you tired of your cat thinking “outside the box”…or living with a hardcore shredder? And we don’t mean snowboarding! 

And when it comes to your multi-cat household – why can’t they all just get along?

Dr. Rachel Geller, certified cat behaviorist, will answer all of these questions and more!

Photography Show: Greg Pronevitz

Greg has been serious about photography since 2006. Before then, he called himself a birder and the challenge of photographing birds in the wild led him to more sophisticated cameras, lenses, and software. His photography has expanded. Most often he seeks out natural scenes and subjects with occasional forays into including man-made objects in his images. Greg's favorite venues include Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge in Concord, Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, the Schoodic Peninsula of Acadia National Park in Maine, and other scenic spots on his various travels. Three years ago, he retired from full-time work and now spends more time out with his camera. He currently posts images on Facebook and on his website https://www.gregpimages.com.

Stop by to enjoy this show in-person or if you are unable, enjoy a virtual tour which will be posted on our In the Gallery page and on our YouTube channel after the show has opened. The show runs October 2 through 29, 2021. Sponsored by the Friends of the Lawrence Library.

In the Art Gallery: Greg Pronevitz, photography

Greg has been serious about photography since 2006. Before then, he called himself a birder and the challenge of photographing birds in the wild led him to more sophisticated cameras, lenses, and software. His photography has expanded.

Most often he seeks out natural scenes and subjects with occasional forays into including man-made objects in his images.

His favorite venues include Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge in Concord, Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, the Schoodic Peninsula of Acadia National Park in Maine, and other scenic spots on his various travels.

Greg worked in the library field for more than 40 years. Three years ago, he retired from full-time work and now spends more time out with his camera.

He currently posts images on Facebook and on his website https://www.gregpimages.com.

Cookbook Club

This month's cookbook is Jubilee : recipes from two centuries of African American cooking by Toni Tipton-Martin. Please register and let us know what recipe you will be sharing! A list of chosen recipes will be posted here.

Booklist Reviews 2019 October #1

*Starred Review* James Beard Award–winning culinary journalist and community activist Tipton-Martin spent decades collecting and researching more than 200 years of Black cookbooks before compiling that work into an anthology (The Jemima Code, 2015) and pop-up exhibit which traveled across North America. This cookbook embodies that research and honors the ancestors who crafted and honed those recipes. Tipton-Martin's knowledge and understanding of the caricatures and stereotypes so rampant throughout this history allow for a nuanced, respectful, loving view of the legacies of the cooks, chefs, and food experts she cites. The depth of context provided here is unusual but both appropriate and necessary today. Recipes—appetizers, breads, soups, salads, sides, vegetables, main dishes, desserts, and beverages— include a paragraph or two about each dishes' history and Tipton-Martin's process for the version presented here. Easy to follow and elegantly precise, it is clear that these recipes are the result of years of devoted artistry. Large color photographs bring the creations to life, and historical recipes included alongside many of the entries contain citations for the originator, source, and date. Indexed by both recipe and name, the rich detail and thorough yet exceedingly readable historical perspective make this cookbook unique and valuable.

Family Book Club

New families welcome!  If you looking for chapter books to read with your child or a fun family program then join us for our informal book club.  

This is a family-led group, each month attendees will pick the book they want to read the next month.

For October we are reading Scat by Carl Hiaasen

Bunny Starch, the most feared biology teacher ever, is missing. She disappeared after a school field trip to Black Vine Swamp. And, to be honest, the kids in her class are relieved.
 
But when the principal tries to tell the students that Mrs. Starch has been called away on a "family emergency," Nick and Marta just don't buy it. No, they figure the class delinquent, Smoke, has something to do with her disappearance.
 
And he does! But not in the way they think. There's a lot more going on in Black Vine Swamp than any one player in this twisted tale can see. And Nick and Marta will have to reckon with an eccentric eco-avenger, a stuffed rat named Chelsea, a wannabe Texas oilman, a singing substitute teacher, and a ticked-off Florida panther before they really begin to see the big picture.
 
That's life in the swamp, kids.

PLEASE REGISTER

This is an outside event.  We will be meeting under the tent behind the library.

You Are Not Alone

This is a Zoom program. Please Register.

You Are Not Alone” approaches the science of death or dying with a healthy dose of common sense and encourages rational skepticism.  The author looks at why and what we believe about the afterlife.  Her book draws distinctions between myths and the paranormal and recounts numerous experiences with energies. She offers hints to avoid falling prey to the frauds in the paranormal field.  The author educates readers on how they too can continue their relationship with their loved ones. With step- by –step advice, Sherman encourages people to think about the potential this information holds for all of us.  Sydney hopes readers will come to the same understanding —they are not gone; they are still very much here with us….we just need to start listening.
With her books and speaking engagements, thousands have learned how to connect and benefit from the guidance and protection of their own loved ones.  
Author Sydney Sherman grew up in a small town in Connecticut in the 60’s. 
Ms. Sherman shares her experiences at various speaking opportunities.

Artist Stacy Howe:Mostly Black & White

Stacy creates sanguinary assemblages on paper. Using extremes of beauty, horror, and the commonplace she works to make these themes compatible if not interchangeable.Stacy render objects of material excess and polite society while tracing their links to barbarism and how we socially construct nature through etiquette. A process of Surrealist inspired automatism, notions of dream imagery, and the marriage of contraries are employed to meld incongruous forms which are then harmonized through ornamentation.

Stop by to enjoy this show in-person or if you are unable, enjoy a virtual tour which will be posted on our In the Gallery page and on our YouTube channel after the show has opened. The show runs November 1 through noon on November 27, 2021. Sponsored by the Friends of the Lawrence Library.
